PyDev 2.6.0 is just out of the door.
Main in this release were changes in the interactive console -- and mostly by external contributors, so, it seems this feature has really picked up some traction :)
Hussain Bohra made it possible to have an interactive console bound to a debugger frame and James Blackburn did a bunch of fixes in it.
Aside from that, the default PyUnit runner has new options to include/exclude files from the test loading process and Jython has an annoying fix done (print can be used as a dotted notation) along with many other fixes (see: http://pydev.org for more details).
Also, the PyDev official issue tracker is now the same tracker used in Aptana Studio 3: https://jira.appcelerator.org/browse/APSTUD/ (there's a component related to PyDev there).
The issues currently on Sourceforge will be migrated to that tracker, but there's no way to make the current Sourceforge trackers read-only, so, I'm just redirecting people to the new tracker and asking not to post on the old one -- hope that works :)
It's interesting to note that now the official Eclipse release is focused on Eclipse 4.x (and not on 3.x)... the integration has already been tested, but not as much as the 3.x series, so, please report any issues found in the way.
